How to Crochet the Jasmine Stitch

The Jasmine stitch takes its name from the flower that it resembles; it’s pretty, yet simple, full of texture and easy to work up.

You can use any weight of yarn, as long as you use the corresponding hook. (check the yarn label for this information)

The Jasmine stitch is perfect for blankets, cushions, garments & accessories.  Just be aware that this stitch create an open weave fabric, so if using for a cushion cover, you might like to place it over a pretty cushion cover (or the stuffing will come out).

Ch – Chain.

St –Stitch.

DC – Double Crochet – insert hook, yarn over, pull the loop back through the stitch (two loops on hook), yarn over and pull through both loops on hook. (US ~ Single Crochet /SC)

Turning Puff – Pull up an extended loop, yarn over, insert hook (into DC just made) yarn over, pull the loop back through the stitch (three loops on hook), yarn over, insert hook, yarn over, pull the loop back through the stitch (five loops on hook), pinch the working yarn, yarn over and pull though all five loops on hook, insert hook under the pinched yarn, yarn over, pull the loop back through the stitch (two loops on hook), yarn over and pull though the remaining two loops (you’ve just made a DC) to secure the puff.

Notes:

The jasmine stitch starts with a foundation puff row instead of chain stitches.

You work a turning puff, instead of a turning chain.

Work as many puffs on the foundation row to match your desired size, and add one more puff.

A foundation puff and tuning puff are worked the same way, apart from the very 1st foundation puff, that one is worked into the ch1 at the start, each subsequent puff is worked into the DC that secures the puff.

 

How To (US Terms HERE)

Chain 1

Foundation Row

Step 1: Pull up an extended loop (about 2 cm)

Step 2: *Yarn over, insert hook into the ch1, yarn over and pull through stitch (three loops on hook) repeat from * (five loops on hook).

Step 3: Pinch the working yarn (I use my thumb and middle finger)

For the rest of the tutorial I will use the darning needle to show where to pinch ….like this.

Now yarn over and pull through all five loops.

Step 4: Insert hook under the pinched yarn.

Step 5: Yarn over and pull up a loop.

Step 6: Yarn over and pull though both loops on hook (you’ve just made a DC) to secure the puff.

Repeat steps 1 – 6, but now work step 2 into the DC that sits on top of the puff to secure.

Keep making puffs until you have reached your desired length, and then make one more puff.

Row 1:

Step 1: Pull up an extended loop

You are now going to work the jasmine stitch; you will work into three stitches to complete one jasmine stitch.

Step 2: *Yarn over, insert hook into the DC (shown with darning needles), yarn over and pull through stitch (three loops on hook) repeat from * (five loops on hook).

Step 3: Repeat step 2 (nine loops on hook)

Step 4: Repeat step 2 (thirteen loops on hook)

Step 5: Pinch the working yarn.

Step 6: Now yarn over and pull through all thirteen loops.

Step 7: Insert hook under the pinched yarn, Yarn over and pull up a loop.

Step 8: Yarn over and pull though both loops on hook (you’ve just made a DC) to secure the puff.

Repeat steps 1 – 8. Stop before the last stitch.

For the last stich you will repeat steps 1 – 8, but the last puff is worked into the ch1 from the beginning.

 

Row 2:

Turn your work, you are now going to create a turning puff.

Repeat steps 1 – 6 of the foundation row (working into the DC shown, instead of the ch1 like on the foundation row)

For the rest of the row repeat steps 1 – 8 of Row 1.  Stop before the last stitch.

For the last stich you will repeat steps 1 – 8, but the last puff is worked into the last DC on the end of each row, from now on.
